Research and Markets: High Performance Computing User Site Census: Storage 2014

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/bl24jk/high_performance) has announced the addition of Intersect360 Research's new report "High Performance Computing User Site Census: Storage 2014" to their offering.

This report examines storage usage within the HPC user community and explores how this usage varies based on categories such as storage capacity, site configuration, supplier, and network

Key findings of the survey include the following:

- Approximately 32% of the total available storage at respondents' sites resides on compute servers. Storage available to each node (referred to as node-level storage) represents 12% of the capacity and storage available to the server (referred to as system-level storage) accounts for 20% of the total available storage. The remaining 68% of storage is found at the site level, generally on Network-Attached Storage (NAS) or Storage Area Network (SAN) systems. On average, 598TB of storage resides at the site level on a storage system.

- SSDs are still in their early stages of adoption for HPC. Very few of the systems with SSDs reported 100% usage, suggesting most SSDs are being used as an additional tier between memory and traditional hard disks in order to improve storage-to-memory latencies. For systems last modified in 2012+, about 14% stated they used SSDs in at least some of their nodes.

- About 82% of the 429 sites have at least one site-level storage system installed. No vendor dominates the storage system market for HPC sites. IBM has the largest share with 15.1% of survey responses but is closely followed by DataDirect Networks with 13.9%.

- Data revealed that 10 Gigabit Ethernet is used at 34% of the sites while InfiniBand is used at 30% of the sites for site-level storage system networks.

- Parallel file system adoption continues to progress slowly, with most adoption taking place in academic or government research. Most storage management software (36%) in use by the surveyed sites was provided by the storage system vendor. Lustre and GPFS were the next most frequently mentioned storage management software with 19% and 17% of the systems, respectively.
